So, I know I have been singing the praises of docs and nurses and the way they have been so nice to me as a patient throughout this whole process. Well, I know now that NOT everyone has a good bedside manner.
Since my Neurologist is on maternity leave, I have had to speak to a covering doctor who isn't helpful to say the least. If I call the office and say I just recently had a stroke and have searing head pain, wouldn't you call back that same business day, kind of quickly? I called these people at 10:00am and didn't hear from the doc until 9:30pm that evening. I could have had multiple strokes in that time or some kind of attack or whatever. The crazy thing is that this is the SAME doctor that was on call when I first had the stroke and was calling to see what I should do. He didn't call me at all that one time and look what happened.
Thinking about it now, I really don't know how some people can get their medical degrees. There should be at least 3 classes devoted to bedside manner and how to deal with patients. This is someone's health you're messing with! You can't press reset and get a do-over. And it's down to the receptionists too! Such attitude. It's not my fault you're not happy at your job. I know that sometimes you're having a bad day but don't act like I am the one who put salt in your corn flakes.
Boo to them.
